About Mayflower 400

  • It is 15m long and weighs 9 tonnes. It is basically a trimaran that navigates with complete autonomy. The ship is covered with solar panels.
  • The ship is to study marine pollution and analyze plastics in water. The voyage is important because more than 80% of the underwater world remains unexplored.
  • It has been taught on how to avoid collisions. Thus, the ship can correct itself. It has been trained with hundred hours of audio data. The training will help the ship to detect the presence of marine animals and thereby provide information about the population distribution of these animals in the ocean.
  • Sophisticated cameras and radars will act as the eyes and ears of the ship. There are six cameras in the ship.
  • The research team is to monitor the ship twenty-four hours from England.
  • It is capable of self-activating a hydrophone that can listen to whales.
